Kimoto family donation

We just received a beautiful 1960 winter Olympic cup from the Kimoto family, dedicated to June Kimoto by her daughter Susan. Thanks so much – it is now on display for everyone to see!

The original Olympics rings have arrived!!

 We  believe the rings were used at the stadium for the McKinney Creek Nordic venue  near Tahoma, Cal. The original owner salvaged them after the Olympics. Ron  Parson, owner of Granlibakken Resort, arranged for the donation, obtained the  rings, and put them on loan to the museum. The rings appear to be in their  original condition without any visible repair or repainting.
